By Land And Water In Georgetown’s “Five Rivers”

Let’s delve into the mysteries and hideaways harbored by South Carolina’s Lowcountry Blackwater Rivers – including the Great Pee Dee and Little Pee Dee; the Lynches and the Black; the Waccamaw and the Sampit. Two classic inns – the Grove (Marion, SC), and Mansfield Plantation (Black River, near Georgetown) – will be home for two nights each. Famous hospitality, touring led by the locals, and top shelf explorers’ appeal will be on tap. This will be a quintessential South Carolina experience.

TRIP HIGHLIGHTS:

• Exploration of Sandy Island – idyllic, water-bound enclave of Gullah culture, and rich land-and-river-tied heritage

• Accommodations and touring at the Grove – one of the finest house museums in the Southeast; stories will feature the W.J. Montgomery family, the restoration of the Grove, and Francis Marion’s local exploits

• The storied grounds and structures of Mansfield Plantation – joined to the Black River for two and half centuries

• Brookgreen Gardens, and the 1930’s home of Archer and Anna (Hyatt) Huntington – Atalaya
